Hygienic behavior is a heritable trait that beekeepers can selectively breed for. Colonies that are more hygienic are more sensitive to unhealthy brood pheromones, and thus more resistant to mites and disease.

Our Specialty-Cotton Honey

Indulge in the exquisite taste of our Premium Cotton Honey, a delicacy that captures the essence of blooming cotton fields in a jar. Sourced from the heart of cotton-growing regions of Virginia, this honey is a testament to the dedication of our bees who tirelessly collect nectar from cotton blossoms to create a truly unique and delightful honey experience.
